Overview

A collection of letters written home to parents, siblings, lovers, wives and children of New Zealand soldiers in the Great War. These letters describe exactly what it was like to be at war: the waiting, the nervous anticipation, the noise, the dirt, the lice, the stench of dead and rotting bodies decaying in the sun and then the relative sanctuary of hospital. These letters demonstrate the human face of the battlefield.
